About Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also referred to as peripheral artery disease, is a disruption of the blood flow leaving or returning to the heart from the body due to a variety of conditions that affect the vasculature and limit their ability to transport blood. PVD is a slow and progressive circulation disorder caused by narrowing (atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries), blockage or spasm in a blood vessel. PVD may involve any blood vessels outside of the heart and brain including arteries, veins or lymphatic vessels. These vessels carry blood to the legs, arms, stomach or kidneys, and may not get enough blood to function properly. Venous thromboembolism, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and chronic venous insufficiency are some examples of PVD’s effects in the veins. Arterial conditions associated with PVD may include peripheral arterial occlusion, Buerger’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and acrocyanosis.
